Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, March 5

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile, Purse $27,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, 4-year-olds and up

2 Larry Birdstone – Any hopes that this horse would run the way Larry Bird played ball are long gone; first time for a price tag, wake-up.

6 Derby Glass – Suspect if you’re a racing fan, you do own a KY Derby glass; Ron Ellis barn has been tearing them up this meet.

Long Shot – Bula Bula

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Claiming $25,000, 4-year-olds and up

2 Public Policy – Has good tactical speed to sit a nice trip throughout; fits well class wise, has much back class to rely upon.

6 Celtic Moon – Dead late closer has a solid late kick; will need an aggressive early pace to do his best running in the stretch.

Long Shot – 5 Flat Gone

Race 3 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Charming Starlet – Sticks with turf where she has done her most productive running; like the rail post at one mile to save ground.

5 Thermodynamics – Clearly has the pedigree to handle the transition from dirt to turf; tries 2-turns for the first time.

Long Shot – 2 Lirica Heat

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

9 Moonlight Meeting – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; Simon Callaghan taking the blinkers off.

5 Preordained – FTS from the Jeff Mullins barn; your edge over me is you can see the tote board action well after I wrote this.

Long Shot – 3 Jacob’s Blubird

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Cee’s Tizzy Belle – Her last race is fast enough, if repeated, to beat these; like that Rafael Bejarano remains loyal to the cause.

3 Jean Edward – Has shown steady incremental improvement with each start; tries turf and 2-turns for the first time.

Long Shot – 1 Twentyfive to Life

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds

6 Grazen Sky – That was one impressive MSW win last time; facing winners for the first time is always a big class rise though.

2 Guy Code – His last four races are light years faster than his first three races; best horse in Goncalino Almeida’s barn for now.

Long Shot – 8 Kluszewski

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $62,500, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

4 Heavens Stairway – When horses win down the hill, they tend to keep running well over it; has won 4-of-6 starts down this tricky course.

6 Royal Temptress – Has two good runs down the hillside turf course without winning; HOF Gary Stevens takes over for HOF Mike Smith.

Long Shot – 8 Black Bird Rock

Race 8 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $32,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

4 Time for Angie – She fits under the no claim rule put into effect for the entire racing season; key vote comes from Rafael Bejarano.

5 Kerrilynn – She makes her first start since May, but unlike Time for Angie, is not claim proof; has good speed useful in this short sprint.

Long Shot – 1 Twelve Folds

Best Bet – 1 Charming Starlet (race 3)

Santa Anita Sunday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/5/$29.00; Long Shots, 9/3/$28.80; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
